Cook pasta shells in boiling, salted water as directed on pasta packaging. Pour pasta into large colander and rinse under cold water until chilled and set aside.
Make the dressing by whisking together the mayonnaise, olive oil, lemon juice, mustard, salt and pepper until smooth and then stir in parsley and chives.
